    That is BRUTAL. I've never seen it that low but for a while last summer speeds were pretty slow on EXT on the Bonavista Peninsula, but they were around 0.25 Mbps down and maybe 1 or 2 Mbps up. I think It was because of the high amount of tourists on the peninsula at the time may have upped the traffic on the local towers so Bell throttled down Rogers customers purposely to help stabilize their own because I haven't had any issues in those areas since. What area are you in?

    It was at Mile One. Everytime I go there phone switches to EXT. I did another test the next night and dl was ~19mbps and upload was less than 1

    You may have been throttled because of the congestion on Bell in Mile One during hockey etc. From the crowds. I'm surprised you connect to EXT in Mile One tho. I've never been down there since I switched to Rogers so I'm not sure what coverage is like. I know Bell has indoor antennas inside Mile One so there's good coverage but is there any Rogers coverage inside at all?

    Yeah I was just thinking that I'm pretty sure I had good signal across the street from mile one before, outside of course. Must be all the steel/concrete blocking out service. Also even though they have antennas on top of the Fortis Building on the east end of water street I don't think they reach/face in the direction of Mile One especially from interference of other buildings in the way. The Shea Heights tower is the only one I can see actually serving the west end of downtown including mile one and george street, but it's almost a bit too far away to be effective indoors at Mile One anyways with the materials used for the building. I'm guessing either a rooftop tower in the west end of downtown close to Mile One, or an indoor Rogers DAS installed inside Mile One would be the only way to fix coverage.

    Does anyone know of an easy to interpret map of up to date tower listing? The app I have hasn't been updated in over a year
